TraceTogether supports Singapore’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 through community-driven contact tracing.
TraceTogether uses Bluetooth signals to determine if you are near another TraceTogether user. Your Bluetooth proximity data is encrypted and stored only on your phone. The Ministry of Health (MOH) will seek your consent to upload the data, if it’s needed for contact tracing.
If you had close contact with a COVID-19 case, TraceTogether allows the MOH call you more quickly, to provide guidance and care.
TraceTogether helps us protect our loved ones and families so that we do not spread the virus to them unknowingly. It also helps us support the work of contact tracers and healthcare workers by combating the spread of COVID-19 together.
TraceTogether's functionality will be suspended after the epidemic subsides.
Thanks for participating in community-driven contact tracing with TraceTogether!
In this update, we've improved the process of uploading data to MOH.

Possible alternative solution?
Hi there! Like a lot of the other reviews I agree that this is a great initiative, but like a lot of fellow iPhone users I feel it is rather troublesome to be on this app all the time. Perhaps with iPhone’s app Bluetooth regulations, another solution could be to use one’s location? You know like how Pokémon Go can access your location to see how far you’ve walked without the app being open. A log could be created with time and location, and you guys could use a similar encryption to whatever you are doing now to encrypt the data to ensure others cannot see where users have been recently. I know in terms of effectiveness it may not be as effective as the current idea of Bluetooth connections, but I feel in terms of data collection to monitor contact with others you will be able to get more data with this.
Good idea, hoping it will work even in the background
20/3 tip: the OTP always doesnt work on the first try. Hard close the app and try again and it will work.
I think its a great idea but hopefully it will be able to work with the app in the background instead.
To all the negative nancys out there, yes there are bugs and yes the app is not perfect but its a start and a good idea in the very least. If you are socially responsible enough, you wouldnt mind keeping if in power save mode in the background.
Personally, I will listen to music during commute so I will play it in the background while keeping this app on in the foreground. I only use it when i’m in public spaces with crowds so its not a big deal if it has to be on in the foreground for a while to work. If u label this as a useless/lousy app just because you rather watch videos/ scroll through social media than keep this on in the foreground, maybe it just shows what you prioritise as a person.
Agile development at its best
In times like these, the priority is to get something working out to the masses fast and I think the GovTech team has done well in this aspect. Unfortunately there will always be people who will value privacy more than their health, people who will think that the UI/UX could be better... dun be disheartened and take all these comments as potential improvements for the next iteration! Personally I think the app does a fantastic job in meeting the contact tracing requirements while balancing the amount and type information collected. Fantastic job and keep it up!
